Oh yea and BTW I would have to FIRMLY disagree that the M50 holds up to the S500 with my HD25 pleathers. I simply stopped using my M50 because with those pads all i can think when using them is "man these things have NO mids"... Particularly lower mids.
Thats the nice thing about these is you can tweak your sound where as the thread I read on the M50 trying different pads is a nightmare and just makes them sound bad.
Agreed on the comfort being far superior with the M50. I don't feel the soundstage is improved it is just more distant which makes it seem bigger IMO.
